Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful delicate necklace I love that madewell has so many delicate jewelry pieces when it seems like the trend this year is big costume jewelry. This is a beautiful little necklace that adds a perfect polished touch to any outfit. As the previous reviewer mentioned, it does say r+t but only on the back, so I wouldn't consider that a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Built But Not For Me This is a really nice locket and seems very well built. I also loved the unique toggle closure instead of a lobster clasp. But, like others commented, I wasn't thrilled that it had an engraving on one side. I probably could have lived with that but I also prefer a longer chain (more like 20") so it hits past my collarbone. Finally, the space to put a keepsake is pretty minimal with the way the locket opens/closes and I fully intended this to be functional so no luck there either. Based on all the above (and final cost) I chose to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from classic and simple I had my eye on this for a while before I purchased it on sale. I noticed I kept wanting to throw on a classic, small, simple but unique necklace and I thought this fit the bill. Like the other reviewers mentioned, it has R+T engraved in the center of the back, pretty tiny, not a big deal, but I can see how it might be off-putting if you intended this as a gift or heirloom piece. I'm very pleased with the quality and look of the necklace and it's definitely fun that it's a functioning locket too. Madewell jewelry is just my style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings I am on the fence about this locket. I have been looking for a small locket necklace that is not a pendant and I thought this was perfect until it arrived. I really love almost everything about it except for the color. The gold is like an antique gold. It just looks old like it needs to be polished. I do agree with other reviews about the R & T initials being on the back of the locket to be in a weird place. It would be better if they added a small tag near the toggle or changed it to a lobster clasp. So I'm torn whether to keep it or not. I really want to keep a picture of my dog that I lost a year ago but I don't feel very pretty when I have it on. I did get it on sale so maybe I'll keep it for now and keep searching.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned I returned this necklace after it was delivered because of the R+T engraving. It was very odd to engrave this on the necklace right in the center and was not mentioned in the description. i wish they would've left the engraving off of the necklace because it was so cute.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from R + T engraved on locket I bought this as a gift for a friend who lost someone close to them, thinking they could use it to keep a small memory of that person with them in this locket. Now that I've received the locket, I don't want to gift it anymore & not because I want to keep it for myself, but because it has "R+T" engraved on one side of it! Why would this not be mentioned in the description or shown in the product photos?? I'm really annoyed about these initials. Even if Rivet & Thread was a brand I loved (never heard of them until now) I still would not want to wear a locket with a meaningful memento inside of it with initials that have nothing to do with me, let alone gift this to someone. If it doesn't bother you, then by all means buy it because it is a well-made piece of understated jewelry. The locket opens and could contain something glued down sized 3/8" x 1/4", details that the product description could've added. The locket is not a shiny-gold, it is a true brass-tone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great quality I love this necklace the raw brass look is so different from "gold" It holds up well and it almost has a vintagy feel. It stands out and looks expensive. This is totally different from other jewelry and it goes well with everything from yoga clothes to jeans or a dressy look. I would definitely look for more pieces in this raw brass metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I got this on sale and read the other (helpful) reviews that mentioned the makers stamp on one side of the locket. Helpful but I didn't intend this as a gift, so it wasn't an issue for me. The locket is a good weight and I love the toggle clasp. A great value and a basic everyday piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect casual necklace I have been looking for a casual style necklace to wear with my flannel shirts and sweatshirts and this is the one! It's the perfect length and I love the beautifully simple design. Yes it does have the initials R&T on one side, but I don't wear that side out. I have gotten many compliments on this piece from people of all ages!
